Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:06:32 PM
And here we go.

Art & JJ depart at 5:10 PM. Fly to Turin, Italy! Choose a Ford Focus and drive themselves to the Lingotto Building. Art & JJ say that nobody has the intellect and strength that they do to win... :umn:

First flight departs at 9:15 AM and arrives the next day at 10:30 AM. :lol:

Brenchel depart at 9:59 PM. Joey and Danny depart at 10:00 PM. Joey and Danny talk about hot girls.

Bopper & Mark depart at 10:08 PM. Bopper: "We're going somewhere tropical!" :lol:
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**

Nary & Jamie depart at... some time. And they everybody follows at some time. :lol:

Bopper and Mark whistle at some girl in short shorts.

Everyone is going to a travel agent to get on the 10:35 AM trip to Turin.

Bopper & Mark decided to go to the airport... Uh oh. This might be trouble. They see Art & JJ and they're told they have to go back to the travel agency... :groan:
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: TARAsia Fan on March 11, 2012, 07:08:51 PM
Kentucky fails to go to the travel agent. And the Border Patrol Agents save them. Holy frijoles.

Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:10:02 PM
Vanessa & Ralph depart at 12:15 AM.

Ralph: "Is she wearing sequence today?" Ralph and Vanessa talk about Rachel's clothes.

Bopper & Mark get tickets that arrive at 11:50 AM. Every other team leaves earlier...
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: TARAsia Fan on March 11, 2012, 07:10:11 PM
Bopper & Mark get on the later flight to Turin. Their mistake costs them an hour and 15 minutes.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:11:07 PM
And all the other teams while Bopper & Mark are still at the airport... Bad mistake.

Ralph to Joey & Danny: You guys got a 5 minute head start on us! I got this ________ (referring to Vanessa). :lol3:

Art & JJ get the first clue! Fast forward! They have to land a helicopter. One team member has to wear the landing platform helmet while the other team lands it.

Roadblock: Rappel 120ft of the Lingotto building. They have to get the clue in the 2 minutes allotted.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: TARAsia Fan on March 11, 2012, 07:18:27 PM
Road Block. Rappel down the building, but teams have two minutes to get their clue hanging from a rope. I like this! If not, they have to go back up to the start. Good hook, Bertram.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**

RACHEL is a goddess and finishes in first, and Team Jersey finishes shortly after <33333

and lol how can you fail at landing a helicopter. We get one every year and its the easiest thing to fly :lol:
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:19:51 PM
I don't enjoy this Fast Forward. Seems too easy.

Rachel is doing the roadblock. Danny is doing the roadblock. Both of them get the clue and they're already done... Danny has the biggest wedgie in the world.

Brenchel finish the roadblock in first. Joey & Danny finish in 2nd.

They have to proceed to a museum (and they have to park using the assist parking feature).

Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:21:40 PM
And Bopper & Mark arrive.

Dave wants to do the fast foward because he's done stuff with helicopters before. Rachel doesn't because Art & JJ are already doing it. Rachel is rappelling.

Vanessa is going really, really slowly. Like really slowly.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:22:58 PM
Vanessa fails. So does Jamie.

Dave & Rachel are out of the roadblock in 3rd.

Rachel and Brendon have a mini freakout at each other... about using the active park feature. :lol3:

Jamie & Vanessa finish.

Art & JJ finish the Fast Forward. Make their way to the next pit stop.

WOW. Keri & Stacy are so far behind! They arrive at the roadblock after Art & JJ finish the FF.

Rachel says she will get last if Brendon continues talking to her like that.

Now how did Brenchel get the clue? And they have no idea what the clue says. And Brendon boasts that he has a bunch of degrees. Shut up.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**
Post by: Polaroid on March 11, 2012, 07:28:54 PM
Stacy does the roadblock. They're out of the roadblock in 7th.

Mark: They don't speak no English, my brother." :lol:

Brenchel get their clue first. It's a clue and they have to figure out the building is their next clue. Brendon talks about his credentials...

Joey & Danny. Davechel gets their clue. Vanessa & Ralph get it. Nary & Jamie.

Davechel and Joey & Danny ask where the place on the coin is. And they know where the're going.
Title: Re: Ep 4 East Coast SHOW updates and commentary **please note time change!!!**

Keri & Stacy arrive at the museum. Brenchel have left by then.

Bopper & Mark are at the roadblock. Bopper does the roadblock... and they're done.

And about brenchel, thay've done pretty well, they just need to chill out and they'll get back on track....

This season has been so great so far. I like the purposely unbalanced Detours of the last few legs. The casting and tasks are a big improvement from last year and back to the classic days of TAR.

Dave and Rachel are still my favorites, I like how she just blows past his constant worrying and doesn't get into a stupid breakdown. Dave needs to calm down a little and not be so uptight. They are also one of the few teams that perform well and don't fight with other teams. They were back to their super performance tonight, they would have won if not for the FF.

Art and JJ are nowhere near as bad as people think and I like the country boys a lot too.

I am surprised none of the earlier teams went for the fast forward. First, you're not sure anyone went for it, but there is a good chance. Second, you know one of the slower teams is on a later flight.

 This fast forward had the opportunity to see two teams fight for it. We haven't seen two teams do that since?

I think the last Fast Forward to have two teams fight for it was the eating on in Kazakhstan from Season 13. I hope this means the increase in the number of them. They don't need to be extreme. Look at what the early ones were- walk to the bottom of a hill, eat two meat pies, look under some rugs, talk to a person.

There is a Speedbump next leg. Just that Phil did not mention. In the end, it went to a melo-dramatic moment where "Art and J.J." wanted to do good and give 5k away.

Okay, money appreciated and that was really nice. But you could have did it more discreetly like after the race or what. Instead, it became a weird moment where Art and J.J suddenly appeared to present themselves even before Phil announced that it was a NEL.

I agree. That moment was TV gold, of course the producers are going to want the viewers to see it.

I would not assume that there is a Speed Bump any more than I would have assumed as a fact that the model helicopter task was a Fast Forward.
To me, it is speculation about the Speed Bump until we have express word from CBS in the promo materials, or there is a vidcap or photograph clearly showing that there is a Speed Bump.

One thing to keep in mind is that Bert and Elise are trying to keep us, and the Racers, guessing, by not doing the same things the same way any longer. We no longer have traditional clue boxes 90-plus percent of the time. We no longer have the location sign at the pit stop map. These last two seasons, Phil no longer introduces the last pit stop location at the beginning of the episode as "the pit stop for the previous leg" but as the "starting point" for the next leg. And they changing up the music at the end of the episode before the preview and closing credits with different music every leg.

In other words, the old line about Big Brother, "Expect the Unexpected" applies more and more to TAR. At least it is a concerted effort to keep things fresh without going for cheap melodrama between teams. (Racehl might be viewed as an exception, but then veteran BB watchers already know that Rachel needs to be taught some better stress management skills.)

Vanessa & Ralph depart at 12:15 AM.

Ralph: "Is she wearing sequence today?" Ralph and Vanessa talk about Rachel's clothes.

Bopper & Mark get tickets that arrive at 11:50 AM. Every other team leaves earlier...
Polaroid,

Based on my research about the flights involved, it's pretty obvious that all 8 teams took the same flights Asuncion to Sao Paulo and Sao Paulo to Rome. Mark and Bopper were not able to get on the Rome to Turin flight with the other 7 teams. However, the 7 teams did not actually arrive until 1123am because AZ1413 was 48 minutes late on Dec. 3, 2011. And I don't know what happened to mark and Bopper since their flight, AZ1429 was cancelled, leaving them to seek connections through Frankfurt most likely.

See my comments either above or on the AR Transport thread. the mistake was planned to cost them 75 minutes, but it ended up costing perhaps double that since their flight Rome to Turin was cancelled.

I have 4/4 for episode titles. :lol3: This is such a Kerri and Stacey title!

And I thought this episode was horribly boring.

^ agreed ^

I don't know. How is rappelling in a building exciting? There's not even scenic views!

How's flying a helicopter and landing it on your partner's head even interesting?

How's washing a statue even counted as a task?

The only interesting part of the episode was the Salami..... which lasted around 5 minutes and with like only 2 teams doing it.

This episode is probably one of the worst's in TAR history. It's pretty one sided as to who's last or who's first and worst of all, the tasks does not even do Turin, Italy justice! :gaah:

Joab,

I can't agree on the short time for Taste Your Salami DETOUR. I think it took a long time for Brendon and Rachel, although I don't have any idea about Kerri/Stacey. That was a hard DETOUR. They had to taste and memorize at the Gastronomico Salumeria and then walk somewhere that was not in the same neighborhood, then try to name, walk back to Gastronomico Salumeria and repeat that cycle a few times. I am going to guess it took more than 30 minutes, but obviously I don't know.

I do agree that cleaning a statue was a poor choice for a DETOUR because it was too easy.

The "land a mini-helicopter" challenge for the FAST FORWARD looked extremely tricky to me. Maybe the remaining David could have done it quickly (although he would have been foolish to try given the experience Art and JJ had gained on that task by that time).

Rappeling was pretty boring, except for "if you don't get the clue in 2 minutes you have to go back to the top and start over."

Isn't David a helicopter pilot? Or at least a pilot? The hand-eye coordination would have been key in the task, and I suspect David could have completed the task fairly quickly. (Or anyone with experience flying model aircraft or model cars. It would have been the right type of skill for that task.)

I think this would have been very exciting if more than one team had attempted it. There was probably a fair bit of luck involved so it could have gone either way.

Now we do not know what the clue said, but with the benefit of hindsight I say that at least Brendon & Rachel should have attempted it. It was very close so they would not have lost much time, and they had a bit of a buffer since Mark & Bopper team was 1h behind.

That's what he thought but Rachel made him settle for another "utter failure" (AKA second place to normal people) :lol:
